How to format your references using the Austrian Studies citation style

This is a short guide how to format citations and the bibliography in a manuscript for Austrian Studies. For a complete guide how to prepare your manuscript refer to the journal's instructions to authors.

Using reference management software

Typically you don't format your citations and bibliography by hand. The easiest way is to use a reference manager:

PaperpileThe citation style is built in and you can choose it in Settings > Citation Style or Paperpile > Citation Style in Google Docs.
EndNoteFind the style here: output styles overview
Mendeley, Zotero, Papers, and othersThe style is either built in or you can download a CSL file that is supported by most references management programs.
BibTeXBibTeX syles are usually part of a LaTeX template. Check the instructions to authors if the publisher offers a LaTeX template for this journal.

Journal articles

Those examples are references to articles in scholarly journals and how they are supposed to appear in your bibliography.

Not all journals organize their published articles in volumes and issues, so these fields are optional. Some electronic journals do not provide a page range, but instead list an article identifier. In a case like this it's safe to use the article identifier instead of the page range.

A journal article with 1 author
Fratzl, Peter, ‘Materials Science. A Composite Matter of Alignment’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 335.6065 (2012), 177–78
A journal article with 2 authors
Cazenave, Anny, and R. Steven Nerem, ‘Geophysics. Redistributing Earth’s Mass’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 297.5582 (2002), 783–84
A journal article with 3 authors
Seiffert, Erik R., Elwyn L. Simons, and Yousry Attia, ‘Fossil Evidence for an Ancient Divergence of Lorises and Galagos’, Nature, 422.6930 (2003), 421–24
A journal article with 7 or more authors
Kroodsma, David A., Juan Mayorga, Timothy Hochberg, Nathan A. Miller, Kristina Boerder, Francesco Ferretti, and others, ‘Response to Comment on “Tracking the Global Footprint of Fisheries”’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 361.6404 (2018)

Books and book chapters

Here are examples of references for authored and edited books as well as book chapters.

An authored book
Simmendinger, Heinz, HOAI 2013: Praxisleitfaden Für Ingenieure Und Architekten (D-69451 Weinheim, Germany: Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH, 2013)
An edited book
Ramos, Carlos, Paulo Novais, Céline Ehrwein Nihan, and Juan M. Corchado Rodríguez, eds., Ambient Intelligence - Software and Applications: 5th International Symposium on Ambient Intelligence, Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing (Cham: Springer International Publishing, 2014), ccxci
A chapter in an edited book
Rashid, Fakhra, Feng Feng, and Audil Rashid, ‘Community Perceptions of Ecological Disturbances Caused During Terrorists Invasion and Counter-Insurgency Operations in Swat, Pakistan’, in Regional Ecological Challenges for Peace in Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia Pacific, ed. by Úrsula Oswald Spring, Hans Günter Brauch, Serrena Eréndira Serrano Oswald, and Juliet Bennett, The Anthropocene: Politik—Economics—Society—Science (Cham: Springer International Publishing, 2016), pp. 91–105

Web sites

Sometimes references to web sites should appear directly in the text rather than in the bibliography. Refer to the Instructions to authors for Austrian Studies.

Blog post
Davis, Josh, ‘Earliest Evidence Of Human Impact On Geological Processes Is 11,500 Years Old’, IFLScience (IFLScience, 2017)

Reports

This example shows the general structure used for government reports, technical reports, and scientific reports. If you can't locate the report number then it might be better to cite the report as a book. For reports it is usually not individual people that are credited as authors, but a governmental department or agency like "U. S. Food and Drug Administration" or "National Cancer Institute".

Government report
Government Accountability Office, Technology: America’s Schools Not Designed or Equipped for 21st Century (Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 4 April 1995)

Theses and dissertations

Theses including Ph.D. dissertations, Master's theses or Bachelor theses follow the basic format outlined below.

Doctoral dissertation
O’Grady, Caitlin Rose, ‘Journeys of Our Ancestors: Conservation Science Approaches to the Analysis of Cultural Material’ (unpublished Doctoral dissertation, University of Arizona, 2009)

News paper articles

Unlike scholarly journals, news papers do not usually have a volume and issue number. Instead, the full date and page number is required for a correct reference.

New York Times article
Wagner, James, ‘Mets Have Little Time To Get Into Wild-Card Race’, New York Times, 21 June 2017, p. B11

In-text citations

References should be cited in the text by name and year in parentheses:

This sentence cites two references Peter Fratzl, ‘Materials Science. A Composite Matter of Alignment’, Science (New York, N.Y.), 335.6065 (2012), 177–78; Anny Cazenave and R.

Here are examples of in-text citations with multiple authors:
